The only drawback has been price. However, you get to bring twice the carry-on luggage (panniers fit nicely into overhead compartments) and have LOTS more room.
When I see regular sized people jammed together, having to fight for personal space...I have less issues with the price of two seats.
I have had instances of airlines thinking I'd made a mistake in reservations and issuing me only one seat (all handled with sensitivity and tact).
The funniest was when a flight was canceled and I was sent to another airline where I was, indeed, issued two seats.........each in different rows!
